Consolidated Nuclear Security employees at the Y-12 National Security Complex recently shared their time and personal resources to make the holidays brighter for many in surrounding communities.

About 250 children in Morgan, Anderson, Loudon, Monroe, Scott, and Roane counties will receive gifts this season through Y-12’s Angel Tree program. Employees bought and wrapped clothing, shoes, and toys for their “adopted angels.”

Employees also provided gently used coats, toboggans, scarves, and gloves to those served by the Volunteer Ministry Center (VMC) in Knoxville. In addition to cold-weather gear, employees provided dental and toiletry supplies to help stock the VMC’s free dental clinic. About 30 large bags of items were collected. The VMC, a United Way recipient agency, works to prevent and end homelessness in East Tennessee.

“We are blessed to work in a place that provides so generously for each other and for our community in need,” said Anita Hazlewood, 2018 United Way campaign chair at Y-12.

Consolidated Nuclear Security, LLC, manages and operates the Y-12 National Security Complex in Oak Ridge, Tennessee. Y-12 has three missions: maintaining the U.S nuclear deterrent, reducing global nuclear threats, and fueling the nuclear Navy.
